Incheon to Gimpo Airport

Hi,

My flight is estimated to arrive at 4.30pm at Incheon Airport. Would it be possible for me to catch a 7.55pm flight to Jeju in Gimpo?

Also is it advisable to rent a car in Jeju island or a cab will be better?How is the traffic like in Jeju?

Thanks for your kind advice in advance.

i've done some research on the transfer part for my trip.

you can either take:

1. shuttle bus which takes about 40min, 6000won

2. train which takes about 30min, 3700won

if you're taking easterjet, the check-in counters close 20min before departure.

i estimate 1hour to get out from the immigration and another hour to reach Gimpo. Assuming no flight delay, 3hrs is plenty of lag time to catch the flight.

fyi, i'll reach incheon at 730am and planning to take the 1025am flight.

hope the above helps. :)

Thanks for the reply. I did a search too and find out that a minimum of 2hours and 30 min is required for the transfer from Incheon Airport . Assuming all on time should be able to reach Gimpo airport. However too risky, so i have change my itinerary to few days in Seould 1st then only fly to jeju.

I just did a similar flight within that time- yes it's a bit tight but if you get the train (AREX commuter train) it is very reliable.

Hi CrabbyCandy

The same problem here. You can't trust the flight will be on time. I have to spend a few days first in Seoul before going to Jeju. Can you tell me how you book the ticket from Gimpo to Jeju? Did you do it online? Thanks

About your last questions, it is better to rent a car in Jeju.

Although Jeju is an island, it is huge and the public transportation is inconvenient. If you want to visit just two or three famous tour sites, maybe you can use a bus or taxi but if you want to see more, better rent a car or better hire a tour guide who can take you everywhere in Jeju.

Hi Ayhi81,

The limousine bus cost 70,000won and takes about 30mins or more from Incheon to Gimpo Airport and it stops right infront of Gimpo Airport.

AREX train is slightly complicated and you need to find your way unless you have enough time.

Correct check-in counter close 20mins before departure.

"The limousine bus cost 70,000won "

More like 7,000 won, I think.

Make sure you get off at the right terminal at Gimpo, though.

Hello there!

My estimated time of arrival at Incheon from Kuala Lumpur is also the same as you. My trip is in November 2012. I am planning to straight away fly to Jeju once I reach Incheon. After a lot of readings, I decided to take the flight that is between 9-10 pm as I am too afraid of the delaying flight and such. In addition, it gives me ample time to study the AREX train route from Incheon to Gimpo.
